Saint Thomas Midtown Pharmacy Residency

About Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital Pharmacy Residency

The Saint Thomas Midtown PGY1 pharmacy residency was established in 2016 and received full accreditation from the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists in 2018. The full-time program prepares its graduates to assume positions as patient care clinicians, to serve as adjunct faculty for a college of pharmacy, or to pursue second year post-graduate training in a focused area of practice. STM is a community teaching hospital providing the unique capability to engage each of our residents in patient care, project management, and practice management. The PGY1 pharmacy residency is affiliated with the University of Tennessee College of Pharmacy.

The purpose of this PGY1 residency is to build on Pharm.D. education and outcomes to contribute to the development of a clinical pharmacist responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for postgraduate year 2 (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.
